FALL 2019  SYLLABI

The Syllabus Template is available on the eLearning web site. Please direct any questions or concerns you may have to eLearning.

Syllabus in large black letters Syllabus correction Links. Please keep in mind if you are continuing to use older syllabi saved on your computer that several links and office locations are most likely out of date.

    • Public Safety is located in D171, not K100.
    • Only One calendar is needed for Important Dates & Deadlines and Holidays.
    • A&H Student Procedures & Expectations has been revised a couple of times. Best to give the Student Information link available on the A&H site where the document is located. Additional info also located there for students to navigate through issues that may arise in one of their classes, this link will never change.
    • Help with Canvas for students.  I  still see old links on syllabi that are dead which is of no use to students.
    • PLEASE include your COURSE OUTCOMES and HOW OUTCOMES WILL BE MET. This info should be on ALL syllabi.
